Lisa Frank dreams.In what Big Government praisers might try to pass off as an early April Fool’s Day prank, residents of Onoway, Canada woke up last week to find their tap water was ready for Spring.

The water was pink.


No, the culprit wasn’t a herd of unicorns relieving themselves in the town’s reservoir, but instead the pink hue was put down to a valve malfunction at the water treatment plant, which released high levels of potassium permanganate through the water distribution lines.In case you’ve decided that for the rest of your life you’d prefer your water to be pink, you can always go to Western Australia’s Hilier Lake, which is pink due to Halobacteria and Dunaliella salina.

Mayor Dale Krasnow assured his constituents that the pink water didn’t pose any health risks, but admitted that a heads up might have been nice, claiming that his Administration, “Could have done a better job communicating what was going on.”

The water has since returned back to its normal shade.
